@haagen Yeah, you can definitely jump down the rabbit hole with Emacs, but there's no need to go all or nothing. I started out using it as a very basic text editor and just gradually did more and more with it over time.
If you're having trouble on a Mac, check out the wiki page: https://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/EmacsForMacOS
Seems like there's a bunch of ways to get going 😀
@fumbling yes I found that yesterday and got it to work! There is a lot to learn and it should definitely be done in small steps. Going to focus on OrgMode to start with - I have a thought how that can be really nice to keep track of notes. Running it in Evil mode so I at least am familiar with a portion of the keyboard shortcuts.
